The Anti-Extradition Bill Movement has forever changed Hong Kong. The smell of tear gas becomes familiar. People saw their daily lives being affected, yet the fallout of the protest has spread to our daily lives. Although the mental and physical trauma in the movement is unprecedented, Hongkongers are determined to remain as the beacon of light in the midst of narrowing freedom and civic space. The aspiration of safeguarding the culture and core values that constitute the identity of “Hongkonger” stay staunch, even though the path is not easy. But when many pass one way, a road is made.
